Carrie Underwood

You’ll remember a few weeks ago, lots of the pets at MACC were named after musical icons, and they don’t get much more iconic than Carrie Underwood! Carrie is great in the car, rode along with a volunteer to an event at Cheekwood this weekend. Carrie did well with all the other dogs, and enjoyed playing with them, too! She is about a year old and is a big fan of learning new things. The family that takes her in will absolutely adore spending lots of time together and getting all her love. Carrie weighs about 43 pounds. Email


One of the sweetest cats you’ll ever meet, Oliver would love to join you in your home! Oliver is a terrific little four-year-old cat with a lot of affection to give.
